Hooray

Album: Everything's the Rush (2008)
  • Keyboardist Aaron Gilbert told I Like Music about this song: "It's the most up sounding song you'll ever hear but its actually about OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder). Greg's (Aaron's brother, who is the band's lead singer and guitarist) got OCD and he wrote about it and I think people tend to, when they are writing about subject matter like that, tend to write maudlin songs and it doesn't have to be like that. We write about things like that in an up sounding way... so you never really know!"
